Cupcakes heal!

Actually, time heals, medicine heals, and God heals. Wouldn't it be awesome if cupcakes DID heal, though. Imagine getting a headache and knowing that the double chocolate cupcake waiting at home would ease the pain? What if you broke a your leg and your prescription was a cupcake 3 times daily (to be taken with a cold glass of milk)? That would be awesome! 

Well a girl can dream, right? ;-)

Take a walk

Clearly, I'm a fan of sweets. That being the case, I have to stay active. Those sweet calories can add up, so I have to keep moving to subtract the effects of those extra calories. "But K", you say, " who has the time?"
I'm glad you asked! 

-Try taking a walk during one of your breaks or lunch, at work.
-Try taking the stairs, instead of the elevator.
-Try waking up 10 minutes early and doing a morning stretch/yoga routine.
-Try standing up and moving around. while working, at your desk.

Any one of these will start you on the right track! I would say that, once you make a step toward fitness, you can reward yourself with a cupcake. However , that might defeat the purpose. ;-)

First impressions are lasting

I admit it!
Before today, I was a Hipster Cupcake virgin. To be honest; while I love cupcakes, I'm a creature of habit. My habit being double chocolate cupcakes with chocolate toppings, I don't often try anything else. That being the case, when I decided to subscribe to the Terri's Cakes monthly Cakebox, I knew a change was on the way. 

Well, I received my first delivery yesterday; thus the sweet photo shoot. So, today I ate my first Hipster Cupcake. 

It was DELICIOUS! I had German Chocolate, and loved every bit. I love that it was the perfect size (Hipsters come in 4 oz. mason jars), and the packaging insured that the cupcake was moist and icing stayed put, in my lunch bag. It was grab and go; no mess! 

If you haven't tried a Hipster, you're missing out! ;-)

Don't give up!

We, here at Terri's Cakes, are no stranger to disappointment. We've had our share of setbacks in life, but that hasn't stopped us from growing, learning, and moving forward. The fact is, every life has ups and downs. It's unavoidable. What you can avoid, is getting stuck. No matter the obstacle; I encourage you not to quit. Keep trying; keep improving; keep lifting your eyes to the prize. Not everything will go your way, but trust me when I say you don't want it to. Not everything that you think you want in the moment it the best for you, in the long run. Trust that standing and moving for that is right and reaching for your goals and dreams is always the way to go. No great thing is achieved without struggle, so be willing to work and stick it out.

If you need a break, grab a cupcake, then get back in the race! ;-)

Did you know that Terri's Cakes Detroit has mini cupcakes? Well if you didn't, now you know. These bite sized sweets can be purchased by the dozen and are great for small children, or dieting adults. ;-)


Midnight snack (A limerick by KR Carthage)

When you wake up with sweets on you mind,
Don't you fret. It is normal, you'll find,
to desire a treat
That's delightful and sweet
Grab a cupcake, its taste is divine! ;-)

Enjoy the journey

Life is not about the destination; it's all about the journey. Don't let life pass you by, trying to get there. Everyday, try to take the time to enjoy life, because once you get to the end; that's it, it's over. ;-)

A word on kindness

"Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." (Ephesians 4:31-32 KJV)

Words can hurt.

Let's be real; words can tear a person down. Each of us has a responsibility to be kind. Common courtesy dictates that one treats others as he or she wishes to be treated. How much more pleasant would the world be if we all followed the golden rule? A kind word can go a long way. Never underestimate the power of a smile and a hello. When you cross paths with someone who is dealing with life's struggles (hint: everyone is dealing with a silent battle against life's struggles), share an edifying word, not a criticism that will tear them down. Join us, at Terri's Cakes, in spreading positivity and love.

If you want to go a step further, give them a cupcake! ;-)

5 reasons to support small businesses

I support local businesses. I think that small businesses are a vital part of any community. Here are five great reasons to support locally owned businesses: 

1.  Local Character and Prosperity

In the world of big box merchandisers, communities that preserve their unique small businesses have an economic advantage. They also preserve the unique warmth of the area.

2.  Community Well-Being

Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes.

3. Local Decision-Making

Local ownership ensures that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.

4.  Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy

Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community.

5.  Job and Wages

Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits than chains do.

So, if you didn't know, now you know. Start supporting locally owned businesses in your area, today!

End of the summer blues

Let's face it. Summer is coming to an end. Sadly, it will soon be time to put the swim suits and sandals away and gear up for Autumn. Luckily, sweets and can enjoyed year round, and there is nothing better for a brisk Autumn day, than a warm slice of Apple pie. I love snuggling up with a good book and a decadent cupcake, after a long day of work. When it's cool outside, the hearth is one of my favorite spots. Well, I may be getting ahead of myself, as he days are still pretty warm. Mark my words, though, the way 2014 has been moving, the season change will be here before you know it! ;-)

Be true.

Be you. There are billions of people on this planet presently. Billions of people have parished and billions more may, yet, come; but there has never been and never will be another you. You are uniquely crafted, for a unique purpose. There is a mark you will leave on this planet that no one else can. Never let anyone, including yourself, convince you that the best path is one that someone else has already trod. Get to know yourself; get to know your faults and strengths, and do what you were put here to do. Be true to who you are, because recipes are for cupcakes. ;-)
